With a history of selling out in just minutes, both weekends will take place at the world’s most awe-inspiring music venue, The Gorge on July 29-31 and Aug. 5-7. Passes will go on sale Jan. 29 at 10am PT at watershedfest.com.
Known for providing a consistently diverse and eclectic lineup, Watershed’s fans (otherwise known as ‘Shedders) will also be able to enjoy performances by A Thousand Horses, Brothers Osborne, Brett Eldredge, Tyler Farr, Merle Haggard, Neal McCoy, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, David Nail, Jon Pardi, RaeLynn, Travis Tritt and more. Heralded by Country Weekly, Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone as a "must-see" summer festival, attendees will also be able to enjoy the breathtaking and unrivaled setting of the watershed for the Columbia River, the unique backdrop from where the festival drew its name.
“The ’Shedders and my team know how special Watershed is to me and I can’t believe we’re coming back in only our fifth year for two weekends,” said Brian O’Connell, President of Live Nation Country Touring. “I’m so excited to see first-timers like Jason, Keith and Eric’s reaction when they arrive at The Gorge, as the view is just out of this world, and all the artists and fans getting to experience the truly unique vibe of this festival. "
The first to be established in Live Nation’s family of premier country music festivals, the success of Watershed was quickly followed by the launch of four further destination festivals including Faster Horses in Brooklyn, MI; Route 91 Harvest in Las Vegas, NV; Windy City LakeShake in Chicago, IL and FarmBorough in New York, NY.
